    116 – Retail Sales with the Experts

    This week my guest is a seasoned sales professional, in fact, he is my very own big brother. 

    Yep, I convinced him to share his wealth of knowledge with us, and perhaps wisdom, gained after many years across a broad range of industries where he achieved success through his refined approach to converting prospects to loyal clients by servicing their ongoing needs.   

    You will love his straightforward and clear communication style, as seen in his assertion that sales is ‘not’ a dirty word. 

    You will also discover what matters most when stepping into professional sales as he shares his top insider secrets to help you improve your sales game.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this week’s episode and believe me when I tell you that it doesn’t end here.

    So put your feet up and relax, gorgeous.

    #115 - Have you been kicked in the guts lately?

    #115 - Have you been kicked in the guts lately?

    I know, I know, I did promise to speak about how to navigate in our mental body this week.



    How to empower ourselves in the midst of the labyrinth of thoughts and narratives that seem to want our attention, however, it will have to wait till episode 197 because this morning something happened.



    There I was having a delightful breakfast with a dear friend and Toby when out came the missile. Out of nowhere she felt the need to share a little piece of her wisdom. She wanted to enlighten me about something she could see, it was all about me. 



    At first, it felt bad, I didn’t like it and I could feel my whole body tense up. I mean really tense up and then my mouth opened and I began to defend myself. Up went the RED flag. What was I afraid of?



    Suddenly, I began to relax. My body, my mind and my heart just opened. I listened and asked her to go on.



    Honestly, it felt like a kick in the guts, hence the title of this episode. However, I will let you in on a secret. I enjoy friendships where feedback is shared, where I can learn a little more about how others see me. It’s not always comfortable but it allows me to exercise discernment but most importantly all the incredible access it gives me to my own superpowers.



    Listen in girl, feet up, we are going on a wild ride.



    Hey, remember, I love your comments, your perspectives, share, share, share your voice, beautiful.



    Love

    #114 - A patch of grass

    #114 - A patch of grass

    This week our episode is dedicated to women around the world. Women of every faith, every country, mothers, wives, entrepreneurs.

    How can a holistic approach in life and business help you achieve your maximum potential mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and financially?

    How can being a holistic human being can help women to live a harmonious life? With the world's expectations on us, as a woman?

    Being a holistic human being might sound a little uncommon, but it’s actually beautiful.

    With everything that has been occurring, the world going mad, taking a holistic approach will allow you to take a step back, breathe and connect with your authentic self.  What’s going on in your head? What are you feeling? How is it affecting your body, your life?

    Always remember that your emotions manifest in your body. It does matter.

    Live, breath, find that patch of grass and find the authentic you.

    Yes, it’s time, feet up, pour a glass of wine and click the play button.

    Love

    #112 - The Biggest Opportunity Lies Before You, Right NOW!

    #112 - The Biggest Opportunity Lies Before You, Right NOW!

    Hey darling, how are you keeping up these days?!

    Are you feeling the pressure?

    Understandably so, the universe has a lot to do with it. There is a bigger picture at play right now and it’s having an effect on all of us. Granted some will be feeling it more than others, but regardless, the change is happening.

    So, how do we run a business, grow a team, and build our relationships in the midst of all this crazy?

    Take the plunge, see the opportunity, and go with the flow.

    There are no short term answers here. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

    If we look a little deeper, we may consider this time to be why we came here in the first place.

    Whether we are aware of it or not, we are offered an opportunity to evolve with every microsecond.

    This isn’t some ‘spiritual’ hoo-ha! This is something far richer, more meaningful than new age blah, blah.

    The laws of the universe are at play and if you don’t get them, times will be very, very, tough right now.

    Feet up gorgeous! Let’s talk about what comes first and how you can ride this wave and fly.

    Love

    #111 - What Camp Are You In?

    #111 - What Camp Are You In?

    How are you, Gorgeous?!

    I had to share this with you today because I am amazed.

    We are all aware, especially in the beauty industry, that the world is going through enormous change and turmoil. However, in the midst of this, I have never before seen such unbelievable change in beauty industry professionals.

    Am I the bearer of good news?!… I am so delighted to say, YES!

    Despite the worldly events, the light is pouring in.

    Now you, me, everyone can choose their camp and believe me when I say, whether you are conscious of it or not, you are choosing every microsecond of your life.

    In this episode, discover how to discern what camp you are in all of the time, or most of the time and what you can do about it. Learn how to set up your day and make it stunningly beautiful regardless of the world and its ‘crazy.’

    There is no virtue in suffering... just saying!

    As women, as beauty professionals even, we have a responsibility to so many. The camp you choose matters. It affects so many.

    Finally, and the most important reason, is to find out how to be practically with you; to deeply change your relationship with yourself. Stay with me all the way to the end. It’s so worth it, Beautiful.

    Feet up! And remember, your comments are meaningful. I love hearing from you.

    Love,

    Elle
